This article is from International Journal of Molecular Sciences, volume 14.AbstractPhospholipids are one of the major structural elements of biological membranes. Due to their amphiphilic character, they can adopt various molecular assemblies when dispersed in water, such as bilayer vesicles or micelles, which give them unique interfacial properties and render them very attractive in terms of foam or emulsion stabilization. This article aims at reviewing the properties of phospholipids at the... Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3709755
